Important Information
When should I reserve?

A day in advance is sufficient. We have many rafts available but we need to know in advance how many people will use the transport we provide.

Is it safe?

There is an element of risk in all sports and here is how they are minimized: In rafting, security protocols are very strict. You will receive proper equipment, instructions and a guide accompanies you throughout the entire activity. In addition, there are kayakers following you, ready to help you if needed.

Can anyone do this activity?

The main requirement is to know how to swim. Then, depending on the experience you are looking for and the age of the participants, you can chose from our Family, Express or Full-day rafting.

Do I need a wetsuit?

Early in the season it is necessary although once the summer has begun, the water is warm enough to wear only bathing suits with a windbreaker and/or fleece. It is included during the whole season (except the boots (5$), available to rent onsite). You will need a photo ID to do so. Consult our What to wear information page.

When is the lunch served, and what is for lunch?

The Lunch (included in the family rafting and full days) is served after the first descent on the river (only 1 descent with the family rafting). It’s a good idea to have a snack before leaving for the trip. It is a simple lunch with a variety of sandwiches served with vegetables and juice. Dinner (included in the full days) is served after the 2nd decent on the river. On the menu, steak or salmon, served with salad, vegetables and rice or potatoes. For those with allergies or for vegetarians, please specify upon reservation and we will be able to accommodate your requests.

Where do I leave my things?

Either in your car or in the provided locker.

If I drive myself is there free parking and will they bring me back to my car?

Yes there is free parking at base camp. The rafting trip starts from base camp and heads upstream via bus. We return to base camp via the river.

Will I get wet of fall in?

Probably. Before getting on the water, those who want a rougher ride will be put in a different raft from those who want an easier ride. Even if you do not end up in the river, waves often wash over the entire raft. It’s all part of the fun.

How should I dress and what to bring?

Consult our What to wear information page.


Looking for a fun and exciting activity to enjoy with your family this summer? Look no further than our Family Rafting Mont Tremblant adventure! Designed specifically for families with children aged six and up, this four-hour trip down the Rouge River is the perfect way to enjoy the sunshine and scenery.

As you raft 8 to 10 kilometers down the river, you’ll encounter rapids ranging from class 1 to class 2, providing plenty of thrills without being too challenging for younger children. Along the way, our expert guides will ensure your safety and provide tips and tricks to help you make the most of the experience. In addition to the rapids, you’ll also have the opportunity to stop and engage in other fun activities. Hop out of your raft for a refreshing swim, or take the plunge with some cliff jumping! We also include a riverside lunch on this trip; sandwiches (meats, ham, hummus) fruits and juice. Vegetarian options possible by request, please let us know in advance.

Our Mont Tremblant family rafting package is great for families with children 6 years old and up. However, families with kids 12 and up who are looking for a little more action may prefer our Rafting Express half-day adventure offering class 3 rapids and a wilder ride down the river.
